330 ml bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/16/2013. Pours fairly crystal clear reddish brown color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of dark roasted coffee, chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toast, roasted malt, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, and roast/toasty earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of coffee, dark/roasted malt, and light earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of roasted coffee, chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, caramel, toast, brown bread, light nuttiness, herbal, and roast/toasty earthiness. Fair amount of herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of coffee, chocolate, cocoa, roast, caramel, toast, brown bread, light nuttiness, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of coffee and dark/roasted malt flavors; with a good bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately creamy, and slightly chalky/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice coffee porter. Good balance and complexity of coffee and dark/roasted malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

4.15/5 rDev +9.5%
Decent sized light brown head dies to a quarter inch or less of creamy froth above a very dark brown to black colored beer.
The aroma is on the lighter side with heavy coffee and lighter malt notes.
Creamy rich coffee taste with maybe some maltiness coming through as well, but definitely coffee outweighing whatever else is trying to come through.
The coffee taste sticks around with a light dryish aftertaste that leaves an almost creamy film coating my tongue.
I need to search out a chocolate porter/stout from these guys, I think if they make one of those that compares to this with chocolate, damn, I can dream can't I.

3.55/5 rDev -6.3%
Aroma: light roast malt character with a hint of coffee. Light diacetyl.
Appearance: dark brown with golden hues in the light. Off white head that lingers.
Taste: roast and toast are prominent. Slight noble hop bitterness in the finish. Coffee flavor presents as the beer warms, but not overly coffee.
Mouthfeel: light body with medium carbonation. Slightly tannic in the finish.
Overall: easy drinking coffee porter. Coffee blends in well with the roasted malt.
